\ From the Publisher"Thank you for the great casebook. I have used this for over 10 years in my graduate cases with great success."\ "Students' participation is noticeable when the case touches a conflict between personal and professional issue."\ "My experience with the Knapp casebook has been incredibly positive. The cases are so well written that I have never had a complaint about the readability of the cases. I have often custom published a casebook with just the cases that I plan to use and that has always been a very easy process."\ \ \
